To support “Art & Exploration in Nineteenth- and Early-Twentieth-Century American Culture,” a three-day “Teachers as Scholars” seminar at the Newberry Library ┬áin 2012. During the program teachers examine and plan classroom projects with the Newberry’s rich holdings in the art and visual cultural of exploration, focusing on the exploration of the Missouri River, Yellowstone, Mexico, and the North and South Poles. Participants later reconvene to report on the results of teaching with this material.
